One of the easiest ways to improve warehouse productivity and reduce the amount of time you spend moving inventory is through the use of conveyors.
Far removed from the slow-moving motorized conveyor belts you’ve probably seen in movies (which seem to be used more for big action scenes than actually moving product), gravity flow conveyors and other types of conveyors can drastically improve productivity in warehouses of any size and cut down on a lot of the more laborious parts of moving product where it needs to go.
Of course, just like with any new warehousing implement, there’s somewhat of a learning curve to getting these conveyors working their best, and your workers may need some time and extra help familiarizing themselves with how to use it effectively. Below are a few commonly-cited tips for making conveyor belts work smarter, more safely, and more ergonomically for your staff:
Conveyors work best when used to fill a space between steps in the warehousing process, or to close a gap between different sets of warehouse shelving. Locate areas in your warehouse where workers have had to carry boxes themselves; any distance too short for forklifts but too long to install other shelves is a perfect candidate for conveyors to help move products more quickly and reduce the strain placed on your workers by having to move packages manually.
